HOW WE’VE COME SO FAR
has been donated as of December 8, 2015.
All donations go 100% to the cause!
100% of your donation will go directly to feed the hungry, educate the oppressed and spread the gospel in Thailand and Burma.
The trip runs eight weeks, from June to August of 2015, spanning nearly 3,500 miles. I have secured lead sponsors to underwrite trip costs which are normally a part of fundraising for a trip like this. Any remaining trip costs, as well as all credit card fees from your online donations, will be covered personally by me in order to ensure that 100% of your gift goes directly to the cause.
Over the course of the trip, we will be stopping at nearly 40 churches along the way and be given the opportunity to raise even more funds for Venture projects in Thailand and Burma by speaking to groups about the injustice that is happening in those parts of the world. By partnering with me as I sacrifice my time, body, and resources, you will help educate many more people across the United States about what they can do to help those in need around the world.
In 1948, post WWII Burma entered into a civil war started by a military regime that is against many ethnic minorities and opposing political parties. This war is still ongoing and has become the world’s longest lasting civil war. For over 60 years, the militant government of Burma has committed genocide, rape, torture, slavery and imprisonment against its own people. This civil war has displaced over 3 million people all over the country. Many of which have fled to neighboring Thailand as refugees, asylum seekers and stateless persons.
HELP BRING HOPE
By donating to this effort you will also be indirectly helping educate people along our route about the realities of injustice and oppression facing children and families in Thailand and Burma.
Through Venture Expeditions your donation will directly bring hope to the refugees themselves in three ways:
Venture offers opportunity to vulnerable children through scholarships, after-school programming and English education.
In the midst of a food shortage, Venture provides meals to help malnourished refugees living along the Thailand and Burma border.
Venture empowers vulnerable children to become the next generation of Christian leaders through Bible training and discipleship.
Venture Expeditions exists to actively engage people in God’s story of justice by raising funds and awareness for missions and humanitarian initiatives around the world while providing an intentional life and faith development program for participants.
